“When you arise in the morning, think of what a precious privilege it is to be alive – to breathe, to think, to enjoy, to love.”
As you contemplate the New Year and all the wonderful things you hope to create – love, abundance, opportunities, fresh perspectives – there’s a yoga mudra you can use to call in the frequency of new begininngs.
When you are starting a new job, a new relationship, a new year or want to bring in fresh perspective, use Mukula Mudra.
This mudra resembles the bud of a flower before it unfolds.
How you perform Mukula Mudra:
- Bring the fingers of each hand together with your thumb in the shape of a flower bud.
- Point your palms upwards.
- As you hold Mukula Mudra, notice the blessings that are naturally coming into your life.
As you hold Mukula Mudra, use these affirmations:
I ALLOW FRESH NEW ENERGY INTO MY LIFE.
I AM POSSIBLE.
I AM READY FOR MIRACLES.
I ALLOW MY LIFE TO UNFOLD BY GRACE IN PERFECT TIMING.
I AM READY FOR THE DIVINE UNFOLDMENT OF MY LIFE.
I TRUST MY PROCESS.
I ENJOY THE BLESSINGS OF LIFE.
MY GRATITUDE CREATES NEW OPPORTUNITIES.
I WELCOME BENEFICIAL CHANGE.
Want to learn more about how you can use breathwork, mudras and affirmations?
Read my ninth book, The Little Book of Breathwork.
This book explains how you can use simple breathing exercises, positive thoughts and hand modes to clear stress and raise your consciousness for free anytime, anywhere!
“Some people think breathing is done with your lungs,” says Darin McBratney, owner of the Costa Rica Yoga Spa. “Catherine makes it very clear that your breath comes from your entire being. If you inhale the knowledge of this book you will exhale with much more consciousness.
“This book is not breathtaking, it is breathgiving!”
